32k Path Length Issue
« on: 21 September 2020, 09:37 »

Hey Roman, long time no post.

I'm experiencing an issue regarding your v4.036 change:
"added: automatic 32k path length support, no more need to use \\?\ prefixes (*)"
(BTW was super stoked when I read that!)

I have a TOSEC-PIX DAT that CMP does not recognise:
"C:\Program Files\ClrMamePro\datfiles\TOSEC-PIX\Tandy Radio Shack\Magazines\Byte Bandits of America Tandy TRS-80's Computer Club Newsletter\Tandy Radio Shack - Magazines - Byte Bandits of America Tandy TRS-80's Computer Club Newsletter (TOSEC-v2010-01-21_CM)"

The path length is 261, which takes it over the MAX_PATH limit of 260 (by one bloody char!) but my understanding is this should not be an issue now?

Obviously this is not the end of the world, can work around, but thought you would like to know (especially if an easy fix). I've not checked any other TOSEC DATs yet, this is just one I spotted first.

So..what is actually the issue? Yes, all file operations are wrapped so they detect too long paths and automatically add a prefix when needed, so the question is really where exactly (during which operation) it fails for you. I assume in the profiler when adding the datfile? (can you send it please). Or during a datfile update? during a batch run? Drag'n drop a datfiles? So..where exactly?

Profiler. Brand new DAT, sitting in that path (manually copied over). It's definitely there, I can see/open it through regular Windows Explorer and XYplorer. Profiler does not see it.

ah..manually copied over is bad ;) The profiler data is cached. It won't recognize your manual changes. Either use "add" or hit "refresh list". So maybe it's not related to long paths at all

Hmmm, will try again using "Add" later today (I do usually use Add for MAME Softlists, but not most DATs).

I did try Refreshing a couple of times.... no change.
